San Diego, Calif., Oct 24, 2012 / 01:08 am
The Confraternity of Catholic Clergy has released a non-partisan voting guide for Catholics in the form of a free mobile device app.
"With Election Day soon approaching, it is imperative that the lay faithful take their right to vote seriously," Fr. John Trigilio, Jr., president of the San Diego-based fraternity, said Oct. 4.
"This Voting Guide is totally non-partisan. It neither favors nor disavows any political party or candidate. What it does is present gospel values and moral principles of the natural moral law to enable the Catholic voter to evaluate any candidate, issue or pending legislation."
The Catholic Voting Guide app, developed by the Indiana company Little i Apps, is available at no cost for iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows smart phones and tablets.
